ABOUT

Luca Arena (1988) è nato il primo giorno di primavera alle 9:30. È daltonico da 35 anni e ogni giorno cerca di farsene una ragione. Ha studiato economia e marketing presso l’Università di Pisa e nel tempo libero si dedica a viaggi e reportage fotografici.
Molto legato al tema dei colori e alla loro percezione, ama fotografare contesti urbani e suburbani isolandoli dall’ambiente circostante.

Ha all’attivo diverse mostre personali e pubblicazioni online. Il lavoro Impersonalism: Tenerife è stato presentato al pubblico con una mostra personale presso lo Spazio 32 di La Spezia, luogo di riferimento culturale di Fondazione Carispezia, mentre il progetto Á means river | Ísland e il relativo libro omonimo è stato esposto al GATE 26A di Modena.
Predilige il grande formato di stampa, la carta a uso manifesto e i luoghi espositivi all’aperto, soprattutto se grigi e impersonali.

Luca Arena (1988) was born on the first day of spring at 9:30. He is color-blind since 35 years and every day he tries to get over it. He studied economics and marketing at the University of Pisa and during his free time he devotes himself to travel and photographic reports.
Very focused to the theme of colors and their perception, he loves to photograph urban and suburban contexts isolating them from the surrounding environment.
He has several solo exhibitions and online publications. The work Impersonalism: Tenerife was presented to the public with a personal exhibition at Spazio 32 in La Spezia, the cultural reference point of the Carispezia Foundation, while the project Á means river | Ísland and the homonym book was exhibited at GATE 26A in Modena.
He prefers large format printing, poster paper and open-air exhibition venues, especially if they are gray and impersonal.
